The ultra-lightweight (minimum weight of 1 pound 15 ounces) NEMO Hornet 2P 3-Season tent offers fast-paced minimalist-oriented backpackers a sturdy weatherproof freestanding shelter at a fraction of the bulk and weight they’d traditionally expect. The tent’s streamlined profile helps shed wind and water during bad weather and the full mesh canopy offers good ventilation in warmer weather.
Two large side-entry doors make entering and exiting the tent easier on the body and create convenient access for two people. Dual vestibules offer space to stow gear and better coverage from the rain. An internal storage pocket utilizes light-diffusing fabric to turn a headlamp (sold separately) into a lantern capable of illuminating the interior of the tent.
A single hubbed-pole design creates a unique architecture with free-standing support and minimized weight. NEMO has moved the front pole hub overhead which creates more interior volume without the need for an additional ridge pole. Corner guyout points with a unique triangulated design at the “foot” of the tent can be staked-out to maximize internal space or left un-staked for weight savings.
A raised waterproof bathtub-style floor enhances performance in poor weather and also cuts down on wear-and-tear. Fully seam taped construction and the PU-coated Sil Nylon rainfly further bolster weather protection. A custom-fit footprint (sold separately) can be used to offer additional protection against standing water rocks and roots.
Each NEMO Hornet 2P backpacking tent includes a stuff sack, guyout cord, stakes, and a repair kit.

Real Customer Reviews
- Best ultralight semi-freestanding double wall tent
Likes: Weight, interior space, compact, easy setup, great in wind with all guylines, color, high bath tub, double side doors, double vestibule, interior pockets, great ventilation.
Dislikes: No dislikes yet. Haven't tested in rain, so can't say it's waterproof.
Likes: Light, fast to setup, excellent.
Dislikes: Get a foot print.
- Love my new Nemo Hornet. Easy set up and roomy. And Backcountry Edge made it so easy to order.
Likes: Easy set-up
- nemo hornet 2p
Likes: I have tried onJohn Muir Trail last week the tents Its very light, has great door openings and is very easy to set up. I recommend it for one person.
- Light as a feather
Likes: Super lightweight. When packed up in the stuff sack it is approximately the size of a 10" loaf of bread (not including poles). Two doors and vestibules are super convenient. Setup is super easy. As with many 2P tents, this is really a roomy 1P. Two campers would be super tight.
If you're looking for a lightweight option that takes up minimal space in your pack, this is your tent.
Dislikes: The lower corners by your feet and the two vestibules need to be staked in order to get full interior volume. Use caution if you are rough on your gear. Materials are designed for weight savings not durability.
- Better than i hoped for
Spacious for 1
High quality material
Footprint Is nicely designed
Really like the Dual staged options to bag the tent/fly seperate from the poles
Dislikes: listed as 2 person as many tents this size are but too small in my opinon to share
